I do have a few other pictures.

Aside from Jousting, we do Horse Games which include spearing rings, cudgeling cabbage, weaving, water carrying [which is extremely hard to do if you have tiny hands. ><]. This year before we do jousts, we are going to do drills and make it look really nice and fancy. We also thought a pre joust Knightly Games [pretty much like a sword tourney on the ground] to get the crowd pumping. : D

Horse games:

More are on the way!

This was a practice run before the actual Joust.

Great pictures, that looks like a ton of fun to be involved in.

It is. But it's a lot of work, and sometimes a pain up the arse when you deal with people who don't pull their weight. : p

I didn't make volenti up - it's a real legal doctrine. Dueling to the death is not the same because there the intent is actually to kill someone, not just to win a competition. It does not matter how dangerous an activity is; what matters is the intent of the people doing it. If you could prove that a jouster was very reckless I suppose you could argue manslaughter, but it probably wouldn't stick. You may be confused between criminal and civil law; the burden of proof in criminal is much higher.

Deschutes, what kind of saddles do you use? And do you make the bardings yourself?
    09-13-2011, 07:47 PM
For the saddles we use, it depends on Western or Aussie. Never ever do we use English-- the risk of slipping is just too real.

Each Jouster has their preference as to which saddle they use, but for the most part, we use the Aussies do to how they are made. Though, ours are being torn apart on the panels because of the armor...

And Bardings? I am not familiar with that word.

All the fair people here use Mcclellan saddles. (not arguing just adding to the convo)

Color me confused but??? You don't know what barding is???? Really? Are you sure you are reenacting? That's a pretty basic midevil peice of tack?

I do not personally joust. I am just the ground crew who catch the horses and check up on our jousters after each hit. I take care of the horses, but aside from that... I don't really know anything aside from that.

But as far as tack goes, we use current tack with costuming over it.
